Campogrande Cinqueterre Bianco 2016

The Cantina Campogrande Cinqueterre Bianco is a white wine made from the Bosco (90%) grape variety and a portion of Albarola (10%). This wine shows briny notes due to the vineyard’s constant exposure to ocean breezes, as well as a strong minerality. The vines grow on a unique rocky soil, and the resulting wines are citrusy with scents of grapefruit, as well sage and other Mediterranean herbs. Good acidity gives a pleasant freshness to the wine that is very drinkable upon release, but also has the capacity to age very well. Light golden in colour Cinqueterre offers intense aromas of Mediterranean scrub, mineral salts and citrus fruits. The palate is rich, soft and flavoursome with great flavour and freshness.

It is estimated that there are more than 10,000 grape varieties in present commercial production, yet this probably includes the same grapes under other names. With the increase of DNA fingerprinting it is thought that the real number might come down closer to 5,000.
